Re: Using airpower in 44 and beyond

The only place where my airpower seems to struggle is in Afrika Korps because I play with only purchased Italian units, so my airforce consists of a Beefed out Stormo Fighter. (The first Italian Fighter they give you which has 2 heroes that equal +5 Attack I think. He is a beast, so far.) 1 SE Bf-1...

Re: Which Scenario Would You Play Last?

Confirmed. From now on PzC will be very different for me. I can no longer play it, per se, but I can stare at this screen and meditate.

Re: Which Scenario Would You Play Last?

Kharkov and Prokhorovka are excellent suggestions for sure. In the end I decided to do US Corps 42 since it would fit within the time available. The last scenario I'll ever complete was Bizerte. I am not sure I would accept that... maybe you could get a cheap PC somewhere? In theory, I can still pla...

Re: Using airpower in 44 and beyond

Rudel is excellent as an 87G, which has good enough armor that he often doesn't need to be escorted. He can really mess up even the best Soviet tanks in that form. Now if you give him an Fw 190G his air attack is equal to a Me 262 (with a defense of 27, far higher than any fighter) while still reta...

Which Scenario Would You Play Last?

As a Mac user, this will be the last weekend I can play PzC. Although Slitherine is still accepting money for it as of today, the Mac PzC will not work on Macs with 10.15 or greater installed, which comes out Monday. Sure, I could not update my machine just to play this game, but the reality is that...

Re: Using airpower in 44 and beyond

The other thing might be to swap all tac bombers to fighter bombers (but maybe still with fighter escorts, if needed)... Rudel in a fighter bomber is rarely attacked I tried that in the west. Fight bombers aren't that great over there. Is Rudel worth being a fighter bomber? I don't mind escorting h...

Re: Using airpower in 44 and beyond

I follow the kind of approach described by Turtler - maybe two SPAA to escort spearheads, and one or two towed 88s or 128s to weaken enemy aircraft and to defend the main body. I can usually get away with 2 or 3 fighters but you do have to be careful to keep them away from the enemy AA. OK, interes...

Re: Using airpower in 44 and beyond

Before 44, I used 4-5 fighters and a mix of strategic and tac bombers. I usually knocked out their airforce and then attacked their ground units. All while avoided AAA. Now with the Sparkling great strength, I find it's hard or costly to venture out beyond my own lines. Almost every time I do I get...

Re: Your country needs you! Join the Beta for Panzer Corps 2!!!

After you agree to the NDA, the product specs question states "Device e.g. PC, Mac or iPad, CPU, RAM, operating system, graphic card, display resolution". That implies they are open to devices that aren't PCs, when in fact they are not. That text should be fixed to indicate that this is a PC game a...

I assume Mac and iPad users need not apply since these platforms are usually supported as an afterthought, but the link seems to imply that they can join the beta. Please fix. To me, it quite clearly says 'PC' in green letters right below the product art. I'm 99% sure that doesn't mean Panzer Corps...

Re: Best feature from the twitch stream?

;) Can you clarify how the surround feature actually works? Does a unit have to be in every passable hex, or just have zone of control over every passable hex, i.e. every second hex? Does the 'surrounded' indicator ever end up revealing unseen units (i.e. perhaps you are surrounded but you wouldn't...

Re: Start date of the Beta?

Rudankort mentioned something like it will start in May and you could apply here: http://slitherine.com/beta/ ...but there is nothing there yet... also not sure whether this will be closed or open beta in May, they didn't say... so maybe beta starts in May but you may only be able to apply (and pot...

Nobody is hip to twitch, although it's aptly names, since the twitch video flickers on machine. It's still at 500ish views. Youtube is at 2,500 despite being up half as long.

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Dev Diary #9

There is a bug in Unreal that meant the extra brightening given to the units was causing a chronic flickering. That didn't matter when all we were showing was stills. As soon as we had to show animation we had to remove it since darkening of the units is not as offensive as irritating flickering. O...
